Man jumps to his death from downtown hotel balcony

A man jumped to his death from the balcony of a Hilton Palacio Del Rio Hotel room early Saturday afternoon, the San Antonio Medical Examiner’s Office confirms.

Little information is available, but San Antonio police told KSAT the individual was in his 20s, and hit a tree before landing on a stairwell.

The incident occurred about 1 A.M

San Antonio Fire Department confirmed they responded to assist SAPD with a DOA at the hotel. The medical examiner’s office confirmed they received the remains of a person who jumped from the hotel, but did not release any other information.

Portions of South Alamo Street were closed for about two hours following the incident, KSAT reports.

Authorities have not said if the incident happened on the street, or river side of the hotel.

An operator with the hotel said they had no information about such an incident happening at the hotel Saturday, and a manager on duty was not available and did not return calls.
